This “Unknown Lumia” is Probably Not a Lumia at All

With all this official stuff on the Nokia Lumia 928 starting to land, that handset is slowly casting off the garments of rumor and speculation and preparing to step out into the light. It doesn’t look like it’s doing so without a new mystery Nokia handset rising to take its place, and today the image up above is getting some attention, thanks to that handset in blue on the right.

This image comes from the cover of a leaked Nokia document outlining some of the company’s smartphone strategy. The doc talks about humanizing Nokia phones through a focus on things like City Lens, Here, and tech like its wireless charging and PureView cameras. While that could prove very interesting, for the moment we’re captivated by that image.

The phone on the left sure looks like a Lumia 920, but the one on the right had us scratching our heads. We were hard-pressed to find an existing Lumia model that has that kind of gently arcing top. But then we got to thinking about the mystery QWERTY phone from Nokia the other week that ended up being an Asha model; could this be another?

Sure enough, that phone on the right bears more than a passing resemblance to the Asha 311. From the earpiece cutout, to the front-facing camera – even the position of that reflection matches what Nokia uses in its own renders of the 311.

So, sorry to disappoint. There are plenty of Nokia mysteries out there, but we don’t think this is one of them.
